First Round

Goal; Clean up around old well and transplant some Black-eyed Susan's and purple cone flowers around the well. Get Ho to also commit to a paver for the sidewalk.

The pics are after I was done rough grading. There was a small bed to the left with a burr oak and some hosta's, and I just connected the well area together with it.

There were large lilac branches that needed to be thinned out and there was a very large mulberry tree that had started there. Basically you couldn't see the well.

If the HO will let me, I want to salvage some planks out of the barn and re-build the top of the well.

One pic is one of the HO's tractors. 1972, 4020 John Deere. He disposed of the sod for me.

Another pic is of the barn. The HO has just kept up on it enough to keep it from rotting, and a restoration might be happening in a couple of years.
